In this article we intend to condense how to lay laminate flooring into six easy steps that you can follow at home. Remember, if you're not sure how to lay laminate flooring and of your DIY skills in general, it is always a good idea to ask a more experienced friend if they can help you out – even if it's just to get you off on the right foot. The process of laying laminate flooring has evolved alongside the technological advancements with the actual floor boards themselves, and is a perfectly achievable task for even the most humble DIY enthusiast. One important thing to remember before we get started with our how to lay laminate flooring guide is to ensure your laminate flooring has been left in the environment you plan to install them in for at least 48 hours before you start laying. This is very important, as the boards must be allowed to acclimatise to the new room temperature and moisture levels it will be exposed to. The boards themselves will then expand or contract accordingly during this period. In addition to this, you also need to make sure the surface of the floor is thoroughly cleaned, and all dust and debris is removed. Any debris left on the floor surface could cause an inconsistency when you come to lay the tiles as it may alter the level of the sub-floor.
If you have it in mind to install your laminate flooring in your bathroom then consult the manufacturer's instructions on installing laminate flooring in a moist place. The underneath of laminate flooring cannot be directly exposed to moisture so be sure to carefully follow the installation instructions if you intend to install it anywhere that it may come into contact with moisture. You can save yourself various future repairs, and headaches, if you take the time to properly learn how to lay laminate flooring. A couple of hours of instruction can go a long way to securing your piece of mind for a lot of years to come.
